Engage with the community of faculty, students and librarians to introduce digital humanities at ACT.
Currently, there are few faculty and the archives that use DH in limited way in ACT. The library took the initiative to develop and incorporate the DH LibGuide,into the library’s website. This has allowed us to engage those who actively integrate DH so that they expand their use, and inspire others to become involved. Also, we hope it will provide an opportunity to identify DH initiatives on campus and maximize their visibility.
The first step was taken with the launch of the Digital Humanities LibGuide to faculty members during the Academic Council meeting in Spring 2019.
Τhe next steps will be to further enhance it with more relevant content and promote it through close collaboration and frequent meetings with faculty members who will be actually using the DH guide with their students.
Our plan is to organize workshops with the DH experts of our institution and demonstrate DH tools to the rest of faculty in order to introduce their usage into their course syllabus and transform their teaching to be more interactive and engaging.
This presentation will showcase the LibGuide, the overall project planning and the outcomes.
We hope with this presentation to trigger collaboration with other AMICAL institutions and via common projects to educate stakeholders about their use and application in the learning and teaching process. An example of how the guide was used in class by a lecturer and students will be included.
